  • Lullaby Project

    Created 2013-10-15 by maree hensey

    Location: Sligo - Co. Sligo

    Duration: 2013-10-15 to 2014-01-30

Project Outline

The Lullaby project is a partnership between Kids’ Own and Early Childhood Ireland funded through the Arts Council’s Touring and Dissemination Award, with additional funding from Early Childhood Ireland and the Katharine Howard Foundation.

This is a localised tour travelling to three Early Childhood Care & Education Centres in County Sligo: Toadstool Cottage in Ballyrush, Little Pathways in Strandhill, and Sandcastles in Enniscrone.

The Lullaby project is about creating a gentle sensory environment in which babies aged 6-18 are invited to explore sounds and melodies, natural materials, texture, colour and mark making with artist Maree Hensey, musician Martin Brunsden and creative technologist John D’Arcy. The sentiment of lullaby is being explored by the artists through a holistic exploration, in which emphasis is placed on the circle, slowing down, and building confidence through one-to-one engagement with the babies.
